Golf Club Reviews and Discussions
Sorry Csott, I have no idea what the compression is for any of these golf balls, but I would think that you could find out if you check the websites of each. You MAY have to ASK for tath data from a tech rep at the site, but they usually are happy to help out with this type of info if you ask nicely.
I also want to let you guys know that I got an E-mail recently that have a photo of the AVX as being a new stable mate for the ProV1 and ProV1X golf balls. According to the link provided, the ProV1X gives a Higher ball flight and higher spin, and is firmer than the ProV1 ball, while the AVX gives a Lower ball flight and Lower spin and is Softer than the ProV1 ball. So now Titleiest has three balls to chose from. with different ball flight, spin and firmness.
Putting is easy if you have the Right Putter.
We jsut got an Academy Sport opening in town and today they had a 5-7pm soft openning and gave out 20% off coupons..no exclusions. Now they don't have the biggest golf section but they did have Titleist golf balls and I so I was able to pickup the AVX dozen for about $38. So we'll see if they play as well now as they did in April/May when I used them at the beach.
Golf is a game that can only be played...
I wonder what if any difference there is between the new Tour Soft and the new AVX ball is. They sound like the same ball and both come in white and yellow as well.
Used the AVX once yesterday..one Par 3 downhill, 147 yards to the flag, probably playing 140. Now with my swing up till last week, when I was probably overswinging, my PW usually goes about 130-135. Which on this hole would still mean a birdie putt of about 5-8 yards. So grabbed the AVX ball to see with the shorter swing where this would be. hit a good shot which landed just at the back fringe of the green. So probably 150 yards downhill, so about that 140-142 yard. So I still think this ball is longer than the ProV series for me. Will keep trying it and see how it goes.
I've heard nothing but GOOD things about the new AVX golf balls. I wish you had hit both the ProV1 and the AVX on that hole to see which went farther for you. Maybe NEXT time you play that hole you can do a test by hitting both ?????
Depending on how things go tomorrow Don in Pinehurst, I'll try that. I don't know how croweded it'll be but if I have time a few times on the course I'll try to hit both and compare.
I did this some years back when the course was not full and I had time to hit two balls off the tee and NOT hold up the people behind my pairing. One of the most interesting things I learned was that I hit Tour balls longer than I hit the distance version of the same brand. I hit the MasFli Tour ball about 10 yards longer than the MaxFli distance ball which is NOT supposed to happen, but it did for me, and that's what mattered to me. Let us know if you get a chance to do a test next time out. It should be interesting to see what you get.
Well today the course was pretty busy and we had someone following us most of the day so I didn't get a chance to do a good test. I hit both a ProV and the AVX on the Par 3 course but honestly, there I was hitting half wedges most of the time. And the few times I hit 2 balls I can't say i hit both as well as each other. So I'll try again next week when we play at the beach on vacation.
There were a couple times I hit the AVX and the ball seemed to carry further than expected but...not knowing this course, it's hard to say. more to come.
I do NOT know if this is true or not but one video I saw on the Titleist AVX stated that the AVX stands for Alturnative to the V and X. Meaning it's a third choice to go with the Pro V and the Pro V X. This makes sense but it may or may not be true. One would have to contact Titleist to find out I would think. I still have to think that the new Tour Soft is the same ball as the AVX. One reason I think this is that they borh come in white and yellow, and you don't hear much about both of them at the same time.
